Complete Guide To Veneer Aftercare

Dental veneers are a captivating cosmetic dental solution that can change the way you smile.

These ultra-thin shells, customised for your teeth, are cemented to the front surface, concealing flaws, and elevating your smile’s aesthetic.

Today, there are two popular types of veneers for teeth:

1. Composite Veneers:

Also known as direct veneers, these are handcrafted on your teeth using a tooth-coloured resin.

This method offers flexibility in reshaping teeth and a minimally invasive transformation.

2. Porcelain Veneers:

Crafted in dental laboratories, porcelain veneers replicate natural teeth texture and luminosity. Their durability and stain resistance make them a preferred choice than composite veneers.

Proper oral hygiene is crucial in extending the lifespan of your veneers. We recommend:

  • Brushing and Flossing Regularly:

Continue your routine of brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once daily. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste on a soft-bristled brush to avoid damaging the veneers’ surface. Gently floss between teeth and around the veneers to remove food particles and plaque.

  • Dietary Considerations:

Refrain from biting down on hard objects, such as ice or pen caps, as this can lead to chipping or cracking of the veneers. Additionally, limit the consumption of stain-inducing foods and drinks like coffee, red wine, and dark berries to prevent discolouration.

  • Protection and Care
    • Using a Mouthguard

If you’re engaged in sports or any activity that poses a risk of dental injury, wear a custom mouthguard to safeguard your veneers from potential damage.

    • Using a Nightguard

Bruxism (teeth grinding) can harm your veneers over time. Consider wearing a nightguard while sleeping to protect both your natural teeth and veneers.

  • Regular Dental Check-ups:

Scheduled dental appointments are crucial for maintaining your veneers. This way, we can check the health of your teeth veneers over time.
